Gold Reserve, Inc. (GDRZF)
Stockhouse, OTC Markets, 4-Traders, The Street, MarketWatch, Equities, InvestorsHub, and Super Stock Screener reported on Gold Reserve, Inc. (GDRZF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Gold Reserve, Inc. acquires, explores, and develops mining projects. It has a history in mining dating back to 1956 and formed for the purpose of acquiring, exploring, and developing mining properties and placing them into production. An exploration stage company, Gold Reserve is based in Spokane, Washington. The Company lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQX.
Gold Reserve was thoroughly pursuing its arbitration claim against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. It was doing so while continuing to pursue other opportunities. Its objective is to successfully develop proven and probable reserves through making selective property and/or corporate acquisitions.
In 1992, Gold Reserve acquired and began developing what is now known as the Brisas gold and copper project, located in the historic Km 88 mining district of the State of Bolivar in southeastern Venezuela. The Brisas deposit contains ore reserves of 10.2 million ounces of gold and 1.4 billion pounds of copper. Gold Reserve invested close to US $300 million in acquisition, land exploration, development, equipment, and engineering costs from 1992 to 2009.
In April 2008, after Gold Reserve successfully developed the Brisas Project to the point of construction, Venezuela arbitrarily revoked the previous authorization to go ahead with construction of the Brisas Project, eliminating Gold Reserve’s ability to exploit the Brisas Project.
Gold Reserve executed an agreement (Mixed Company Agreement) with Venezuela in August of 2016 for the creation of a jointly owned company (Mixed Company). In October of 2016, together with Venezuela, it established Empresa Mixta Ecosocialista Siembra Minera, S.A., the entity whose mission is to develop the Brisas Cristinas Project.
Gold Reserve signed a settlement agreement (as amended) in June of 2017 with Venezuela that contemplated payment of the Award (including interest) and the purchase of its Mining Data by Venezuela (Settlement Agreement).
With this Agreement, Venezuela agreed to pay Gold Reserve $792 million to satisfy the Award and $240 million for the Mining Data for a total of roughly $1.032 billion. Moreover, Venezuela irrevocably waived its right to pursue any further annulment proceedings associated with Gold Reserve’s enforcement of the Award.
Gold Reserve completed, on March 1, 2016, the acquisition of certain wholly-owned mining claims called the LMS Gold Project (LMS Property), together with certain personal property for $350,000, pursuant to a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Raven Gold Alaska, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Corvus Gold, Inc. The LMS Property remains at an early stage of exploration. It is not material to Gold Reserve.
This past March, Gold Reserve provided the results of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) of the Siembra Minera Gold Copper Project in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (NI 43-101).
Gold Reserve President, Mr. Doug Belanger, said in March, "This study confirms that the Siembra Minera Project is one of the largest gold-copper deposits in the world with some of the lowest project operating costs for such a large project."
Recently, Gold Reserve announced that the mixed company Empresa Mixta Ecosocialista Siembra Minera S.A. (SM), owned 45 percent by Gold Reserve and 55 percent by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, received the Permit to Effect for the Siembra Minera Gold Copper Project (SM Project) from the Venezuelan Ministry of the Environment.
The Permit to Effect will permit site clearing, construction of a temporary camp and warehouse facilities, drilling of dewatering and development drill holes, construction of access roads on the property, and opening of the quarry for construction aggregates.

CurAegis Technologies, Inc. (CRGS)
Equity Clock, 4-Traders, InvestorsHub, Simply Wall St, and OTC Markets reported on CurAegis Technologies, Inc. (CRGS), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
CurAegis Technologies, Inc. develops and markets advanced technologies in the areas of power, safety, and wellness. The Company consists of two independent divisions. One is its CURA Division and the other is its Aegis Division. CurAegis is currently focusing on commercialization strategies in varied technologies. These include the CURA system, which includes the myCadian™ watch that measures degradation of alertness and sleep attributes; the Z-Coach e-learning education and training tool, and the Aegis hydraulic pump.
CurAegis Technologies is headquartered in Rochester, New York. The Company lists on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.
The CURA™ system and the myCadian™ watch enable the user and third parties to anticipate and prevent undesired or disastrous situations caused by the degradation of alertness. The Company completed its validation studies of the CURA System at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the University of Rochester Medical Center. It previously said that it can now state that it can predict a person’s fatigue level, at close to laboratory accuracy, in real-time.
The CURA System consists of hardware and software that measures manifold metrics to establish that a person's ability to perform a task or job appears to be degrading. The CURA division is developing a proprietary technology and family of products designed to measure the reduction in a person’s alertness and to train persons on how to improve alertness levels. The CURA System gives a person accurate and relevant real-time information concerning their present and long-term sleep and fatigue health.
CurAegis Technologies’ Aegis hydraulic pump (Aegis Division) is a unique hydraulic design. Its objective is to deliver better efficiencies in a package that is smaller and lighter than contemporary technologies.
The Z-Coach e-learning tool was acquired by CurAegis Technologies in September 2015. The first of six Z-Coach e-learning modules, Z-Coach Aviation, was designed for aviation professionals. If the CURA (Circadian User Risk Assessment) software detects an issue, Z-Coach creates a back-end solution needed to induce change and improve behavior. This program is broken down into two parts: Z-Coach Education and Z-Coach Intervention.
CurAegis Technologies’ plan is to license its technology to major manufacturers. The Company may consider an exclusive licensing agreement for a period of time if it believes that it is the best way to reach original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and after-market customers.
In May, CurAegis Technologies reported that it launched its CURA System designed for use with the FITBIT® Platform. The Company noted that its internal testing has been very positive. CurAegis has sold and shipped product. The Company is preparing to commence major pilots.
In addition, CurAegis has launched its business to business (B2B) sales programs. The Company stated that users will be able to purchase the FITBIT® via a link on its website or use their existing FITBIT®. CurAegis expects to introduce applications for the myCadian® and other watches for use with the CURA System in the near future.
CurAegis Technologies, Inc. (CRGS), closed Monday's trading session at $0.31, up 19.23%, on 27,300 volume with 10 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 17,053 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.10/$0.74.
Golden Leaf Holdings Ltd. (GLDFF)
Stockhouse, Silicon Investor, Marketwired, InvestorX, InvestorsHub, MarketWatch, and Daily Marijuana Observer reported on Golden Leaf Holdings Ltd. (GLDFF), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed, Golden Leaf Holdings Ltd. is one of the largest cannabis oil and solution providers in North America. The Company is also a foremost cannabis enterprise in Oregon. Golden Leaf has expertise in extracting, refining, marketing, and selling cannabis oil. The Company is headquartered
in Toronto, Ontario.
Golden Leaf is a leading cannabis products company built around recognized brands. It has operations in numerous jurisdictions including Oregon, Nevada and Canada. The Company cultivates, extracts, manufactures and distributes its products by way of its branded Chalice Farms retail dispensaries and through third party dispensaries.
Golden Leaf’s brands include Golden, Proper, Left Coast Connection, and Chalice Farms. Since opening in 2014, Chalice Farms has served the greater Portland, Oregon community with its chain of dispensaries selling its line of 12 premium edibles.
Golden Leaf has its Canadian subsidiary, Medical Marijuana Group (MMG). MMG's genetic portfolio includes a strain that holds the highest CBD concentrations in Canada.
MMG was granted a cultivation license from Health Canada in November of 2017 for its state-of-the-art grow facility in the Province of Ontario. It began cultivation activities in early 2018. Since then, MMG has cultivated four complementary strains of cannabis, which span some of the most desired products in the medical and adult-use market. In early July, MMG harvested its first crops that had yields that were 30 percent more than originally forecasted.
Golden Leaf has its new edible product line of cannabis infused fruit chews. Golden is a Portland-based oils and extracts brand within the Golden Leaf portfolio. The new fruit chews feature a combination of premium cannabis oil, real fruit, and restorative ingredients.
Earlier this month, Golden Leaf announced the introduction of a number of cannabis concentrate product lines in Nevada via its wholly-owned subsidiary, Greenpoint Nevada. Greenpoint’s product launch includes its Golden Tinctures; its Golden Private Stash distillate vape cartridges; and its Golden CBD product lines using Golden Leaf’s best-in-class, cold ethanol extraction processes and proprietary blends of strain-specific terpenes.
Via its Nevada operations, Golden Leaf products are now selling in more than half of the dispensaries in the State. The expectation is that market share will increase once Golden Leaf invests further in production infrastructure.

Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. (LEXG)
MicroCap Daily, Insider Financial, Penny Stock Tweets, Epic Stock Picks, OTC Markets, and The Wolf of Penny Stocks reported on Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. (LEXG), and today we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. concentrates on the acquisition and development potential of lithium brines and other precious metals that demonstrate high probability for near-term production. The Company is currently focusing on sales and distribution of the Sonic Cavitation Ltd. technology and the acquisition of oil and gas related assets in the U.S. and Canada. An exploration and development company, Lithium Exploration is based in Phoenix, Arizona.
Lithium Exploration’s commitment is to developing assets and technologies in Oil & Gas, and Waste Treatment. The Company is developing an ultrasonic generator for different field applications in the oil and gas industry. The technology provides lower cost, low energy solutions to many pre-existing processes within these markets.
Lithium Exploration’s Oil & Gas assets consist of the White Top Field. This asset is positioned onshore in Southwest Louisiana. The cumulative production to-date is 32 million barrels. Current production is 120 barrels of oil per day.
The Company has partnered with Sonic Cavitation (SonCav) to develop SonCav's patented technology for the treatment of hydrocarbon fluid stocks and waste water. The SonCav generator is skid mounted for easy mobility to even the most remote field locations. At present, SonCav is field ready for customers across North America. SonCav runs off of 3 phase electricity. It produces no on-site emissions.
Lithium Exploration announced this past March that its partners in the White Top project were making major progress on the preparations to close on the eventual acquisition of the field and development strategy. The seismic data has been totally processed.
Lithium Exploration stated that it continues to impress all parties that have looked at it. The Company has a royalty interest in the future development of the major oil and gas opportunity in Louisiana.
Lithium Exploration’s Blockchain efforts in the oil and gas industry are moving forward. The Company has been incubating a Blockchain concept, which will make it much easier and more transparent for investors who are not part of the oil and gas ecosystem to participate in investment opportunities.
Nonetheless, the Company is not spending any money on those efforts until after the completion of the royalty acquisition. Lithium Exploration is looking to partner with a couple of external companies to establish the Blockchain marketplace that it will manage.
This month, Lithium Exploration announced that preparation and permitting was initiated at its oil project in SW Louisiana. The expectation is that the pad undergoing preparation will host the drilling of the first three target locations.
A joint team of internal and external geophysicists have prepared the locations. This team has identified these locations in a specific fault block, using the processed seismic data collected last year versus historical production from the field, and determined that these locations will be the most productive. The team has put a projection of 800K to 1.4M barrels of oil from this fault block that can be simultaneously extracted by drilling three wells at different depths.
Lithium Exploration Group, Inc. (LEXG), closed Monday's trading session at $0.01091, up 3.41%, on 31,208 volume with 17 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 347,756 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.00855/$0.1349.
Plateau Energy Metals, Inc. (PLUUF)
OTC Markets, Investors Hangout, MarketWatch, Barchart, Stockwatch, Investing News, Junior Mining Network, Stockhouse, Marketwired, and WatchDog Stocks reported on Plateau Energy Metals, Inc. (PLUUF), and we also report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Plateau Energy Metals, Inc. is a uranium exploration and development company headquartered in Toronto, Ontario. The Company’s focus is on its properties on the Macusani Plateau in southeastern Peru. The Plateau is one of the largest, most highly prospective uranium districts in the world. The Company is moving towards 2020 production.
Plateau Energy Metals controls all reported uranium resources known in Peru. Additionally, it controls substantial and growing lithium resources, and mineral concessions covering greater than 91,000 hectares (910 km2) situated close to significant infrastructure.
There is a history of mining in the area as well as premier infrastructure. Furthermore, the district has supportive government and local communities. Major exploration potential exists on the Macusani Plateau. Drilling is focused on less than 15 percent of the land package.
In June, Plateau Energy Metals announced that recent mapping/sampling efforts have expanded the Falchani lithium-rich mineralization an additional 1 km west of earlier announced sampling. The Company also announced continued strong results from three recently completed inclined diamond drill holes from Platform 3 and Platform 9 at the Falchani project. This project is situated in the Chaccaconiza area of Plateau’s Macusani Plateau Project in southeastern Peru.
This month, Plateau Energy Metals announced continued strong results from four recently completed vertical and one inclined diamond drill holes from Platform 10, Platform 25 and Platform 6, located up to 1 km north of earlier announced drilling and Platform 19A situated towards the southeastern edge of present drilling at the Falchani project, on its Macusani Plateau Project.
Mr. Ian Stalker, Plateau Energy Metals’ Executive Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer, said, “We now expect our maiden lithium mineral resource estimate for Falchani, to be finalized and reported early in this 3rd Quarter. It is important to note that the drilled area that will be covered in this initial Resource, will cover only +/- 25% of the known extent of the mapped lithium-rich tuff unit, and we therefore expect Falchani to grow much larger.”
Plateau Energy Metals, Inc. (PLUUF), closed Monday's trading session at $0.8532, up 6.65%, on 13,182 volume with 20 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 34,282 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.2129/$1.2699.
PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PMCB)
OTCJournal, PennyStockLaboratory, SmallCapNetwork, Cannabis Financial Network News, BUYINS.NET, MyBestStockAlerts, InvestorPlace, Goldman Small Cap Research, Damn Good Penny Picks, Penny Picks, Darth Trader, Wall Street Corner, Penny Stock General, PennyStockInformer, Fast Money Alerts, Penny Stock Beats, Stock Shock and Awe, The Stock Psycho, and Stock Market Media Group reported earlier on PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PMCB), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. focuses on developing targeted treatments for cancer and diabetes applying its signature live cell encapsulation technology, Cell-in-a-Box®. This unique and patented technology is being utilized as a platform upon which treatments for many kinds of cancer, including advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer, and diabetes are being built. A clinical stage biotechnology company, PharmaCyte Biotech has its corporate headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland.
The OTCQB-listed Company is also working towards improving the quality of life of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer and on developing treatments for other kinds of solid cancerous tumors. PharmaCyte’s treatment for pancreatic cancer involves low doses of the recognized anticancer prodrug ifosfamide, together with encapsulated live cells, which convert ifosfamide into its active or "cancer-killing" form.
The capsules are placed as close to the cancerous tumor as possible. This is to enable the delivery of the highest levels of the cancer-killing drug at the source of the cancer. The live-cell encapsulation technology that the Company employs is a way to enclose living cells in protective “cocoons” roughly the size of the head of a pin. It encapsulates living cells, not drugs.
Each capsule can enclose about 10,000 cells. This number can differ depending upon the size of the cells encapsulated. PharmaCyte Biotech is advancing its new treatment for pancreatic cancer into the clinic in the United States, with study sites in Europe and Australia.
Additionally, the Company is developing treatments for cancer based upon chemical constituents of the Cannabis plant, named cannabinoids. It is studying ways to exploit the benefits of Cell-in-a-Box® technology in optimizing the anticancer effectiveness of cannabinoids, while minimizing or outright eliminating the debilitating side effects typically associated with cancer treatments.
In June, PharmaCyte Biotech announced that it successfully completed the comprehensive characterization of its proprietary cell clone known as 22P1G.
The 22P1G cells constitute the cells in the Master Cell Bank (MCB), which were prepared and tested by the Company’s contractor, Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories.
The cells from the MCB will serve as the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in PharmaCyte’s Cell-in-a Box® capsules, which will be used (together with low doses of the cancer prodrug ifosfamide) for the treatment of locally advanced, non-metastatic, inoperable pancreatic cancer (LAPC) in the Company’s planned clinical trial.
Last week, PharmaCyte Biotech announced that it successfully completed a study on the stability after “hand thawing” syringes of the Cell-in-a-Box® encapsulated cells. The data obtained from this “hand thawing” study is compulsory by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The results of the “hand thawing” study announced show that the viability of the cells remains essentially the same for a minimum of 30 minutes at room temperature. This serves to define the time that the interventional radiologist has to implant the Cell-in-a-Box® capsules after thawing to ensure cellular viability within the patient.
PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PMCB), closed Monday's trading session at $0.06575, up 14.95%, on 7,741,439 volume with 438 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 1,500,611 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0302/$0.1049.

In October 2017, ETST announced it is cooperating with the Clinique SIDA Amité (AIDS Friendship Clinic) for a mini-clinical trial, the last trial needed before the MSN-2 device, designed for the detection of STIs, enters molecular diagnostic trials. And in November 2017, the company began pre-launch human trials on a new CBD formula to fight against the U.S. opioid epidemic. The new formula, expected to decrease cravings and the negative effects of withdrawal in addicts, is based on industrial hemp CBD mixed with a known natural ingredient proven to help increase dopamine levels. ETST’s medical devices will first be launched in Vietnam, Djibouti and Morocco while the company awaits regulatory permission to enter the North American market.
The company expects to up-list to the OTCQB in early 2018, which management believes will attract well-funded institutional investors and pave the way to becoming the next billion-dollar-in-capitalization company on the OTC markets. Other highlights include completion of the company’s Scientific Advisory Council with a team of recognized scientists, the launching of several CBD-infused edible products and entry into the medical devices market through collaborative partnerships.
Earth Science Tech has signed a collaborate agreement with Laboratories BNK Canada, a private laboratory that will conduct the clinical studies necessary for MSN-2 medical device-related services to meet regulatory requirements. ETST has confirmed the MSN-2 device’s ability to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea, both highly infectious diseases that often have permanent consequences for patients. ETST will also add testing for trichomoniasis and a complete body fluid panel to detect the different serotypes of the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cervical cancer. These additions will help the company create sales opportunities in the global market for diagnostic testing of STDs that Transparency Market Research has indicated will grow to $108 billion by 2019.
Cannabis Therapeutics is in the development stage of two cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical drugs and three cannabinoid-based nutraceutical products targeting a variety of ailments such as anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease, among others. Research into the benefits of the non-psychoactive cannabinoid molecules found in the cannabis plant is supported by ETST’s International Application for Provisional Patent titled “Cannabidiol Compositions Including Mixtures and Uses Thereof,” which was filed on October 8, 2015. Cannabis Thera’s R&D efforts are concentrated on developing CBD-based drugs and nutraceutical products and in working to integrate the CBD molecule with existing generic drug molecules to create more efficient medications with fewer and less severe side effects. A report in Hemp Business Journal predicts the CBD consumer market will grow to $2.1 billion by 2020, while other industry experts expect an increase to almost $3 billion by 2021. A recent report by Statista projects the U.S. consumer market for cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals could reach $50 billion by the year 2029.
The management team at Earth Science Tech brings decades of invaluable experience to the nutraceutical, dietary supplement field as well as the life sciences sectors. Nickolas S.

Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF)
Oil and gas company Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) is on the verge of putting its oil on the market as it approaches 1,000 barrel per day capacity at its Asphalt Ridge oil sands extraction facility in Utah, according to the company president Dr. R. Gerald Bailey in a recent Uptick Newswire interview (http://nnw.fm/dD73M).
Petroteq Energy Inc. (TSX.V: PQE) (OTC: PQEFF) is a Canadian-registered, publicly traded company engaged in the development and implementation of proprietary technologies for the environmentally safe extraction of heavy oils from oil sands, oil shale deposits and shallow oil deposits. The company is focused on oil and gas exploration and production on mineral leases it owns in Texas with Accord GR Energy Inc. and in expanding production capacity at its Asphalt Ridge heavy oil extraction facility in Utah.
Petroteq Energy is also participating in a blockchain initiative aimed at solving the global transaction needs of the oil and gas industry through the development of PetroBLOQ, the Company’s collaboration formed with First Bitcoin Capital Corp. (OTC: BITCF). PetroBLOQ’s novel blockchain-based oil and gas supply chain management platform is currently being co-developed by the two companies.
PetroBLOQ recently joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance (“EEA”), the world’s largest open-source blockchain initiative. Membership with the 200-member EEA represents a wide variety of industries and offers 14 industry-focused, member-driven working groups.
“Joining this community of forward-looking enterprises and blockchain innovators is an important step for PetroBLOQ as we develop transformative solutions for the oil and gas industry,” said Petroteq Energy CEO Alex Blyumkin.
In addition, Petroteq has joined the American Petroleum Institute (API). The API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, promoting safety across the industry globally and influencing public policy in support of a strong, viable oil and natural gas industry. “API has led the development of operating standards for our industry, and we look forward to contributing our experience with oilfield technologies in addition to introducing our PetroBLOQ platform to its members throughout the supply chain,” Blyumkin previously stated.
Petroteq Energy’s patent-pending application is a closed-loop, solvent-based process, which results in significantly lower per-barrel production costs than those incurred with traditional hot water-based oil sands extraction technologies. This green technology utilizes a small, modular footprint, produces no greenhouse gases, requires no high temperatures, leaves only clean dry sand, and could be deployed to unlock heavy oil deposits located around the world.
The Company’s Asphalt Ridge mineral lease on 3,000-plus acres in northeastern Utah features a large contingent oil sands resource base with an estimated 87 million barrels of oil equivalent. In 2015, the company produced 10,000 barrels of oil from the Utah location and plans to increase production are underway. Utah holds over 32 billion barrels of undeveloped oil sands resources, which are also known as “oil-wet” deposits containing a mixture of sand and a dense, extremely viscous form of petroleum referred to as bitumen or tar. A recent upswing in developing domestic energy sources has intensified interest in technological advances such as Petroteq’s Liquid Extraction System.
The company’s Texas location includes an ownership interest (46%) in 7,000 acres under mineral leases with Accord, a Houston-based oil and gas exploration company that focuses on the development and recovery of heavy oil reserves and deposits. Two enhanced, licensed oil recovery technologies designed to increase oil recovery from more than 80 shallow oil wells on the property are expected to substantially improve the recovery rates of heavy oil deposits in this area. In both the Utah oil sands and traditional oil patch Texas project, the Company, its subsidiaries and Accord are using proprietary technologies, processes and methodologies to recover heavy oil, providing a distinct, strategic economic advantage for Petroteq Energy and its shareholders.
The Company continues to evaluate the development of other medium to heavy oil exploration, production and recovery projects on a global basis through a variety of structured agreements. These opportunities or other arrangements with private and governmental entities that utilize Petroteq Energy’s proprietary licensed technologies are expected to generate a significant return on investment.
The Company’s management team, board of directors and officers form an invaluable cross-section of industry leaders with extensive experience ranging from chemical engineering and solvent research, business development, international project management, entrepreneurial achievements, and senior management for global energy companies in North America and the Middle East. This impressive knowledge base covers both conventional and unconventional oil and gas projects and production, both in upstream and downstream industry sectors.
Petroteq Energy Inc. (PQEFF), closed the day's trading session at $0.97, up 7.78%, on 207,885 volume with 134 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 423,131 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.289/$1.889.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX.V: DNAX) (OTC: BKKSF)
BLOCKSTRAIN TECHNOLOGY CORP. (TSXV: DNAX.V) (OTC: BKKSF) is pleased to announce that, effective as of September 28, 2018, the Company has appointed Swapan Kakumanu as Chief Financial Officer and a Director of the Company.
BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX.V: DNAX) (OTC: BKKSF), a full-service software company headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Canada, has developed the first integrated blockchain platform that registers and tracks cannabis intellectual property (“IP”) from genome to sale. It is proprietary, immutable and cryptographically secure, thereby establishing a single source of truth for cannabis strains and their ownership.
With Canada set to legalize marijuana use for recreational purposes, and other jurisdictions following suit around the world, new challenges will emerge regarding the ability to provide a safe and legal inventory of a product that up until now was largely only available on the black market. Cannabis will be heavily tested and regulated by numerous regulatory bodies in Canada. The cannabis industry faces unique challenges that BLOCKStrain specifically helps it address, including:
- Mandatory Testing: Through BLOCKStrain’s platform and lab-testing partners, the process is more efficient and streamlined, cutting the administrative burden in half and getting products to market faster;
- DNA Based Product Validation: The underlying blockchain technology creates a genetic fingerprint that identifies and validates the product electronically so any participant on the platform, including consumers, can view and track what’s happening with that product from genome to sale;
- Intellectual Property: Third, and perhaps most importantly, the BLOCKStrain platform protects the intellectual property of growers and breeders. This is important for the industry’s growth as products evolve and develop. If a craft grower, for example, creates a popular strain with unique characteristics, it will be able to protect its intellectual property by simply registering the strain’s genome with BLOCKStrain and locking that data into the blockchain. It will reside there forever and will be readily accessible in the event of future disputes, bringing a level of trust to the industry and ensuring licensing fees are paid to all players in the market.
VERIFICATION = CERTIFICATION
BLOCKStrain’s genetics verification process is authentic and incredibly effective. User groups register by creating an account with BLOCKStrain, which starts the process. Organizations and independent growers submit seeds, flower and post-extraction product for testing to a registered and approved testing facility, which then submits test results to BLOCKStrain. Pre-existing data of genetic cannabis strains can also be submitted via BLOCKStrain verification administrators, with those results being added to the user group’s blockchain account. Submissions are entered into BLOCKStrain, and the transaction is completed and recorded.
Each time an item is tested and verified by the network, a Registration Affidavit is auto-generated and given a unique “BLOCKStrain Address” along with a traceable QR Code. Producers, patients and consumers are able to not only verify the test but can also rate the product, write reviews and share opinions. This detail is stored within BLOCKStrain and, just like the test results, cannot be tampered with or modified. Verification and certification are earned by all parties for their participation.
SAFE CONSUMER SUPPLY
BLOCKStrain demystifies the seed-to-sale process for all relevant stakeholders including producers, distributors, shippers, government agencies and consumers by creating a repository of cannabis genomes on an immutable, shared ledger. Thousands of cannabis strains exist and cultivators are breeding new strains all the time. The proliferation of cannabis strains can prove problematic for consumers since there are more than 500 known chemical compounds in a single plant. Furthermore, since several dozens of these compounds have been identified as pharmacologically active, it becomes more and more difficult for consumers to know what they are purchasing.
It is for this reason that being able to quantify the genetics, potency and equivalencies among cannabis products is crucial to the future of legalized cannabis. The difference is not so much in the name or brand attached to the cannabis, but the DNA of the plant itself. BLOCKStrain ensures product integrity, safety, regulatory compliance, product licensing and authenticity – all vital elements for the emerging cannabis industry. This technology also bolsters the process of meeting government regulatory standards by providing real-time visibility of industry operations to agencies assigned to enforce and regulate cannabis activity.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
BLOCKStrain allows for the defense of intellectual property rights for the grower with an authentic, verifiable chain of evidence embedded in the blockchain itself. Proof of ownership for a specific strain of cannabis is paramount in a multibillion dollar industry. Real life ownership disputes have already begun in the industry with legal battles underway. Unfortunately, the framework for resolving these disputes has yet to be defined and they are not likely to be resolved anytime soon.
Consumers and regulators alike want to know whether a cannabis product grown and sold at a local dispensary is safe and meets quality control standards. BLOCKStrain enhances trust of origin from genome-to-sale as cannabis flows through the supply chain, verifying critical steps in the process such as who is growing the plant, which seed is planted and where did it come from, whether pesticides were used, how much was grown, which tests are used to establish quality and potency, where the product is transported and how, and whether possession limits are meeting regulatory standards.
In summary, BLOCKStrain has developed the most comprehensive, secure and community-driven cannabis genetics archival platform for cannabis breeders and growers, large and small, to protect and release their varieties into the public domain, all while compensating and rewarding them for their contributions.
BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (BKKSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.27, up 4.13%, on 67,608 volume with 26 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 111,727 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.109/$0.85.

FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) was highlighted today in an article by CannabisNewsWire. New data that has just been released by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) reveals that the marijuana arrests made in 2017 were more than those which were recorded in 2016. These statistics are surprising given the fact that, by the end of 2017, 28 states had legalized medical or recreational consumption of cannabis.
FinCanna Capital Corp. (CSE: CALI) (OTCQB: FNNZF) is a royalty company aiming to be the capital partner of choice for high-growth, best-in-class businesses operating in the licensed U.S. medical cannabis industry. Primarily focused on the burgeoning California cannabis market, FinCanna leverages extensive investment expertise and industry experience to benefit its shareholders and portfolio companies.
Medical Cannabis Market
According to Ameri Research, the global market for licensed medical cannabis is growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 21%, on track to exceed $63.5 billion by 2024. Within this market, FinCanna has identified considerable opportunity in California, the fifth largest economy in the world and the largest medical cannabis market in North America. Arcview Group forecasts California’s legal cannabis industry will grow at 21.1% CAGR to $6.5 billion in 2020, generating more than $1 billion in tax revenue.
Royalty Model & Portfolio
FinCanna’s “whole capital” solution for businesses in the licensed medical cannabis sector includes the provision of capital investment for a percentage of their future revenues. The FinCanna Capital Solution utilizes a royalty arrangement to deliver capital, in order to facilitate the growth or other specific objectives of its investees, and ensure the business opportunity is optimized. This model provides an alternative or complement to debt and equity financing, allowing investees to maintain financial flexibility and control of their business rather than entering into arrangements that may include restrictive debt structures or giving up an ownership stake.
FinCanna’s portfolio includes Cultivation Technologies, Inc. (“CTI”), a team of experts from Fortune 150 agriculture, medical cannabis, law, engineering and technology companies. FinCanna is providing funding to CTI for its planned, fully entitled, large-scale indoor medical cannabis facility to be developed in Coachella, California.
CTI has established an interim medical cannabis extraction facility (the “Interim Facility”) that will produce licensed medical cannabis products until the Coachella Project is complete. CTI is currently expanding its product line, Coachella Premium, to include vaporizer cartridges. Initial market feedback gathered during the product development phase indicates that Coachella Premium’s vaporizer cartridges offer a unique proposition within the vaporizer market, one of the fastest growing verticals in the cannabis market.
The Interim Facility can process up to 6,000 pounds of biomass per month, the equivalent of approximately 3.7 million grams of raw oil per year, with room for expansion. It is expected that the completed Coachella Project will be able to process 30,000 to 50,000 pounds of biomass per month, or the equivalent of 18 million grams to 30 million grams of raw oil per year.
Additionally FinCanna has entered into a royalty agreement with Green Compliance, a provider of point-of-sale software solution (“ezGreen”) for licensed medical cannabis dispensaries and cultivators. Green Compliance helps its customers comply with both the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) and State Laws by ensuring patients’ confidential data is being handled properly, helping to protect from possible security breaches and financial and criminal liability resulting from potential violations.

Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP)
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTCQX: LXRP) is focused on discovering new technologies that deliver cannabinoids and other lipophilic (fat soluble) beneficial molecules to the bloodstream through efficient and healthy ingestion. The first step to discovering how to deliver a higher percentage into the human bloodstream was to find a way to protect the molecules on their journey through the gastrointestinal system.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (CSE: LXX) (OTC: LXRP) has developed and out-licenses its proprietary technology for improved taste, rapidity, and delivery of bioactive compounds, including cannabinoids. Though boasting a wide range of health benefits, cannabinoids are traditionally poorly absorbed by the body’s gastrointestinal tract. To achieve higher effectiveness, consumers usually default to smoking. Lexaria provides a superior administration method by delivering hemp oil ingredients – or through locally licensed partners, cannabis oil ingredients – through a patented process within food products.
The key differentiator between Lexaria’s products and others on the market is the company’s disruptive technology proven to enhance the absorption of orally ingested cannabinoids while improving the “unusual” taste of cannabinoids and allowing for lower overall dosing with higher efficacy. Lexaria is primarily a B2B enterprise, and is in licensing discussions or has existing agreements with companies in Canada, the largest-market states in the USA, and internationally. Lexaria has also developed its own brands partly for demonstration purposes, utilizing its patented technology to infuse hemp oil ingredients within lipids in popular foods. These brands include ViPova™, Lexaria Energy Foods, and TurboCBD™.
In 2015, Lexaria commissioned an independent, third-party lab to test its technology under carefully monitored in vitro conditions. Results showed that the company’s technological process and lipid formulation both improve intestinal absorption as much as 500%. Additional follow-up studies in human volunteers suggested that Lexaria’s processed, lipid-infused tea may be more effective in an actual gastrointestinal system than in an in vitro simulation with results indicating as much as a 1,000% increase in overall absorption.
Lexaria also has an R&D partnership with the Canadian government’s National Research Council. That R&D is expected to characterize molecular bond formation theorized to occur with Lexaria’s unique technology between the lipid delivery agents and the bioactive substances it processes and combines. Results from this R&D are expected to support accelerating B2B relationships – not just in the cannabis industry, but also to support new B2B business relationships in the fields of vitamins, NSAIDs, and nicotine delivery. All of these sectors expected to offer additional future growth potential.
Aside from testing, a critical component of Lexaria Bioscience’s business model is a strong intellectual property portfolio that utilizes the most commonly used food processing techniques. As of 2017, the company’s patent portfolio includes 19 patent applications filed and pending in more than 40 countries around the world. The most recent patent applications expand Lexaria’s lipophilic food and beverage composition claims to include the processing of cannabinoids, vitamins, NSAIDs and nicotine in many of the world’s most commonly used food processing ingredients. Lexaria is expecting additional new patent awards both in the USA and internationally in 2017 and 2018.
Royalties play a vital role in Lexaria’s revenue-generating business model. The company out-licenses its technology (royalty) to third party partners, and has several deals signed and/or pending. The company’s growth initiatives are guided by a management team headed by CEO Chris Bunka, a serial entrepreneur who has raised more than $50 million in working capital for the companies he has led over the course of his career. He is supported by a team of professionals with extensive experience in pharmaceutical and bioscience sectors, invention, toxicology, consumer goods, and other relevant skillsets.
Lexaria Bioscience Corp. (LXRP), closed the day's trading session at $1.94, up 1.57%, on 134,755 volume with 242 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 202,890 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.322/$2.539.

BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT)
BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTCQB: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT) is a clinical-stage biotechnology company based in Berkeley, California. The company is in the process of developing off-the-shelf personalized cancer treatment options, targeting advanced breast cancer patients.
BriaCell Therapeutics Corp. (OTC: BCTXF) (TSX.V: BCT), based in Berkeley, CA, and headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on the development of targeted immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer.
BriaCell hopes to develop and market the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for the treatment of advanced breast cancer.
The results of two previous proof-of-concept clinical trials produced encouraging results in patients with advanced breast cancer. Most notably, one patient with breast cancer that had spread to other sites (metastatic cancer) responded to Bria-IMT™ with a substantial tumor shrinkage in multiple sites including the breast, the lung, soft tissues and even the brain. Similar observations have been confirmed more recently in additional patients, and BriaCell is developing BriaDX™ as a way to identify those patients most likely to respond.
BriaCell has recently completed recruitment of a Phase I/II study (NCT03066947) of Bria-IMT™, the Company’s lead product candidate, in advanced breast cancer patients showing an outstanding safety profile and excellent efficacy. BriaCell is currently enrolling advanced breast cancer patients in a combination therapy trial (NCT03328026) of Bria-IMT™ with Keytruda® (Keytruda® is a registered trademark of Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., a subsidiary of Merck & Co., Inc.) or Yervoy® (Yervoy® is a registered trademark of Bristol-Myers Squibb Company). For further information on the Phase IIa clinical trials, please visit trial NCT03066947 and trial NCT03328026.
BriaCell’s pipeline also includes Bria-OTS™, the first off-the-shelf personalized immunotherapy for advanced breast cancer; and, a companion diagnostic product BriaDX™. By using BriaDX™ to identify and treat the patients who would most likely benefit from their immunotherapies, BriaCell expects to personalize the treatment for the patients, and bring hope to thousands of cancer patients who currently have few-to-no treatment options.
Breast Cancer Statistics
The National Cancer Institute estimates that more than 265,000 new cases of female breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. during 2018, and that more than 40,000 women in the U.S. will die from the disease. Approximately 12 percent of women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2013-2015 data.
Using its novel technology platform and strong R&D capabilities, BriaCell believes it has the opportunity to address this market, as well as have the opportunity to develop immunotherapy candidates for other cancer indications.
The global cancer immunotherapy market is expected to reach nearly USD$203 billion by 2025.

Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO)
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) (the “Company”) President and CEO, Richard T. Schumacher, joined Stock Day’s Everett Jolly to discuss an exciting new instrument release, the recent featuring of their product line at the largest annual food science meeting in the world, and the continued development of their innovative and enabling Ultra Shear Technology (“UST”) platform. To hear all of Mr. Schumacher’s interview with Stock Day, please go here: http://nnw.fm/tBI8J.
Pressure BioSciences Inc. (PBIO) develops, markets and sells proprietary laboratory instrumentation and associated consumables to the life sciences sample preparation market. Sample preparation refers to the wide range of activities that precede most forms of scientific analysis. It is often complex and time-consuming, yet a critical part of scientific research. The market for sample preparation products is currently estimated at $6 billion worldwide.
The Company’s product line can be used to exquisitely control the sample preparation process. It is based on a patented, enabling technology platform called pressure cycling technology (“PCT”). PCT uses alternating cycles of hydrostatic pressure between ambient (14.5 psi) and ultra-high levels (up to 100,000 psi) to safely and reproducibly control critical biological processes, such as the lysis (breakage) of cells, the digestion of proteins, and the inactivation of pathogens.
Pressure BioSciences’ product line is led by its newly released, next-generation Barocycler 2320EXTREME instrument. Named a finalist in the prestigious 2017 R&D Awards (also known as the “Oscars of Innovation”), the Barocycler 2320EXT is already being touted by some key opinion leaders as an essential element of the $1.8 billion U.S. “Cancer Moonshot” program. For example, Professor Phil Robinson, Co-head of the cancer research center of the Children’s Medical Research Institute (Sydney, Australia), said in a recent interview: “We are collecting the whole proteome on 70,000 tumor samples from all classes where complete clinical outcome is known. Due to its unique capabilities, the Barocycler 2320EXT has become a critical part of our program. It is the primary enabler of the high-throughput component of the project. Without this step, our project simply could not be done. In fact, the Barocycler 2320EXT works so well we have just purchased two more.”
Momentum is building when it comes to the potential for using the Company’s unique PCT technology platform. Leading scientists are intrigued by Pressure BioSciences’ approach, which among other attributes, revolutionizes the process of rupturing cells (lysis) for further study, yielding superior biomolecules for investigation. The Company’s technology transcends current methods of breaking open cells, which use chemicals, blades, metal beads, or other damaging and altering methods that can ultimately adversely affect the result for researchers. Pressure BioSciences’ PCT technology utilizes customized, controlled hydrostatic (water) pressure to rupture cells in a chamber, enabling exquisitely customized levels of pressure to optimally break open different types of cells at prescribed pressure levels—something never before accomplished in a commercial setting. Using this pioneering method, the result is a truer, more legitimate sample, which boosts the efficacy of research and the quality of results. The potential impact of this technology on scientific advancement is enormous, enabling research scientists to begin their studies with biological samples of unprecedented integrity, with the potential to improve research outcomes at the earliest, most critical step. PCT can additionally inactivate pathogens (e.g., viruses, bacteria) using hydrostatic pressure, making the samples safer to study—another innovation with astronomical potential for application in a variety of markets.
The Company’s high-pressure instruments for research purposes are marketed throughout the United States, Europe, China and Japan. To date, Pressure BioSciences has installed nearly 300 PCT Systems in over 165 leading academic, government, biotech and pharma laboratories around the world. Its primary applications are in biomarker discovery, forensics, agriculture and pathology. Over 100 scientific papers have been published on the advantages of the PCT platform, which is also being used in the specialized fields of drug discovery and design, bio-therapeutics characterization, soil and plant biology, vaccine development and histology.
Impressive as their biotech business is, there is more to the PBI story. Pressure BioSciences recently received two patents in China for its novel Ultra Shear Technology (UST), a process that has potential in a wide range of industrial applications, including extending the shelf life of some food products and making two insoluble liquids (like oil in water) soluble. Patents have also been filed in many other countries worldwide. UST is a novel technique based on the use of intense shear forces generated from ultra-high-pressure valve discharge.
This important technology has the potential to play a significant role in a number of commercially important areas through its ability to create high-quality, stable nanoemulsions. Scientific studies indicate that improved absorption, higher bioavailability, greater stability, lower surfactant levels and other advantages can be achieved with nanoemulsions – all hugely important factors in the fields of nutraceuticals, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and in various medical products. There is an enormous opportunity in the cannabis market, since the technology can potentially reduce oil droplets containing cannabidiol (CBD) to nanoparticles, after which they can be safely suspended in a stable water solution—something many companies have endeavored to achieve without success. Researchers looking for a way to increase the bioavailability of cannabinoids in the body will find this technology a game changer.
The Company’s UST technology also has possibilities in the production of clean label foods, which are currently processed using several innovative methods, including high-pressure treatments (such as Starbucks’ Evolution line of juices). In 2015, the worldwide market for high-pressure processed (HPP) food was estimated at U.S. $10 billion. UST uses ultra-high pressures and certain valves to generate intense shear forces under controlled temperature conditions to produce nanoemulsions, and which also significantly reduces food-borne pathogens. Pressure BioSciences’ initial focus with this technology will be to evaluate UST for the production of high-quality dairy products and beverages.

GTX Corp (GTXO)
GTX Corp (OTCBB: GTXO) (“the Company”), an Internet of Things (IoT) solutions provider in the GPS wearable location and wandering assistive technology business, announced today the launch of its new GPS tracker and Near Field Communication (NFC) digital ID system Rover Tracker.
GTX Corp (GTXO), a For Profit For Purpose company, designs, manufactures and commercializes various products and services in the GPS tracking and monitoring business. Operating domestically and internationally, via two subsidiaries engaged in the internet of things (IoT) and wearable technology industry. Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Los Angeles, California, the company is a pioneer in Smart GPS, cellular and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) tracking technology, offering complete, end-to-end tracking solutions through a proprietary IoT enterprise monitoring platform – the IoT Machine to Machine platform – backed by state-of-the-art hardware, software and connectivity solutions, patents and software algorithms.
Operating under the motto “We Put the ‘Where’ in Wearable Tech,” GTX’s main goal is to keep its customers connected to who and what matters most, with each of its patented tracking technologies providing real-time location coordinates on a map via a personalized portal. The company prides itself on offering not only technologies, but also effective solutions that provide safety, security and peace of mind by helping customers locate their loved ones or lost valuable items.
With a portfolio that includes more than 80 patents filed and issued and with products and services available in 35 countries, GTX’s tracking solutions use the latest in miniaturized, low-power GPS, mobile, RF and BLE technology, that can integrate seamlessly with multiple consumer products, enterprise and military applications. The company became a U.S. Military contractor in 2017 and is already developing asset and human tracking technology for the U.S. Air Force. Its list of customers also includes public health authorities and municipalities, emergency and law enforcement, NGOs, private companies, public and private senior care homes, and consumers.
The company’s flagship product is the award-winning GPS SmartSole®, the world’s first invisible wearable tracking device created specifically for people at risk of wandering, becoming lost or disoriented, including patients with Alzheimer’s, autism, dementia, traumatic brain injury and other cognitive problems. According to the World Alzheimer Report 2013 (http://nnw.fm/mrcV2), there are more than 100 million people worldwide who need constant care and monitoring because of a cognitive disorder, and their number is expected to rise to 277 million by 2050. Due to its hidden location – inside a shoe insert, the device can also be used by people undercover or at risk of kidnapping, such as government agents, military personnel, law enforcement, journalists, corporate executives, etc.
Other tracking devices designed and commercialized by the company for civilian or military use include:
- Take-Along Tracker 3G: A powerful mini-tracking device with GPS, 2G and 3G GSM data and voice capabilities, as well as a motion sensor and sleep mode. The device can be easily attached to a keychain, lanyard, dog collar, pocket, bag or plush toy for a discreet but advanced tracking solution.
- Invisabelt: Designed for children, this slim GPS tracker hidden inside a small waistband belt has a battery life of up to two days and is a great solution for parents who want to monitor their children’s location at all times.
- Track My Workforce: An easy and cost-effective solution that allows businesses to track and monitor their mobile workforce. The app is available for both Android and iOS systems, and allows employers to monitor their workforce from a single company account.
- P.E.T.S. -Personnel Equipment Tracking System: Currently in use at the Edwards Air Force Base, this tracking system allows real-time monitoring and surveillance of personnel and assets and has a 200+ square mile coverage. Solar powering capabilities and extend battery life allow the tracker to be used in areas without existing power sources.
- GPS Rifle Tracker: The company’s smallest GPS tracker, designed to withstand shocks and water submersion due to its robust, military standard enclosure, can be mounted on any AR15 platform picatinny rail to detect weapon discharge, track weapons and inventory, and send time and location alerts.
Led by a management team with solid experience in wearable technology, IoT, consumer electronics, mobile and technology licensing, as well as finance and the footwear industry, GTX plans to leverage its core technology platform to reach new verticals via licensing agreements and strategic partnerships, and to monetize its intellectual property portfolio. The monetization campaign kicked off in 2017 has already identified 100 companies that could become licensees. Besides military and law enforcement, the company also eyes the biometrics market, home health, medicare and insurance and other security applications for potential uses of its IoT platform and tracking technology.
GTX currently has 15 domestic and international distributors, subscribers in 35 countries and more than 700 online affiliates. With multiple revenue streams, several consecutive years of double-digit revenue growth and a strong pipeline of lucrative commercial products, GTX is uniquely positioned to become a leading provider of tracking solutions on this growing multi-billion-dollar market.

Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP)
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (OTCMKTS: DVLP), an emerging leader in the cannabidiol (CBD) products marketplace providing business services and products supporting the cannabis industry including an online retail business for cannabidiol (CBD), hemp oil and health/wellness related products, announces it has selected the corporate communications expertise of NetworkNewsWire ("NNW").
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP), an emerging leader in ancillary software and the cannabidiol (CBD) products marketplace, provides business services and/or products supporting the cannabis industry including an online retail business for CBD, hemp oil and health/wellness related products.
Global acceptance of cannabis and related CBD products continues to increase as North America advances toward favorable legislation. Canada is set to legalize recreational cannabis in October 2018, and the United States has 30 states and the District of Columbia allowing either recreational or medical cannabis, or both. Voters in four additional U.S. states will consider marijuana initiatives on the November 2018 ballot. The global legal cannabis market is projected to reach USD$146 billion by the end of 2025, with a greater acceptance of medical cannabis products as a driving factor, according to Grand View Research.
DVLP is taking advantage of consumer demand for CBD products through its wholly owned Pura Vida Vitamins, LLC subsidiary, which recently launched a direct-to-consumer website (www.PuraVidaVitamins.com) and commenced sales of Pura Vida branded products. Pura Vida merchandise includes hemp and CBD-related products and other products focusing on health and lifestyle which are available through established wholesale and distribution channels. In addition, a line of CBD pet supplements and other products are in development.
DVLP recently acquired “Where’s Weed” (Layer Six Media LLC DBA “Where’s Weed”) and its primary asset,?WheresWeed.com. Where’s Weed is an American cannabis technology company known for connecting medical and recreational cannabis users with trusted local marijuana businesses in their communities. As a rapidly growing community-based online resource for cannabis consumers with a host of user-friendly services, Where’s Weed offers a sophisticated mobile app with strong traction and powerful growth potential as the North American legal cannabis market continues to expand exponentially.
WheresWeed.com has a large and expanding reach with nearly 3 million pageviews per month. In addition, the WheresWeed mobile app, available in both iOS and Android, has been downloaded over 80,000 times, proving to be complementary to DVLP’s objective to capitalize on the massive growth curve in the marijuana space.
“The huge flood of new growers and producers is likely to create oversupply in the near term, narrowing margins for major producers,” says DVLP CEO Stavros Triant. “However, this should actually increase the net number of new consumers in the marketplace, further reinforcing the enormous growth potential for hub service providers in the space that are situated on high-traffic internet real estate, which is exactly how we view the Where’s Weed property.”
The company’s move into the lucrative C-store snack market was solidified with a material purchase order for CBD oils from a major distributor specializing in the snack foods and accessories to the convenience store and gas station market. The order represents significant progress as DVLP gears up its ready-made snack distribution strategy for its CBD products.
“We are extremely excited about the launch of our CBD product line with this distributor,” Triant states. “The C-Store strategy dovetails perfectly with our direct marketing strategy through our primary online retail channel, and we have indications from the distributor that, if this initial test order goes well, successive Purchase Orders could be significant and underpin strong sales growth in Q1 2019.”
Golden Developing Solutions, Inc. (DVLP), closed the day's trading session at $0.0301, off by 5.35%, on 1,647,680 volume with 89 trades. The average volume for the last 3 months is 441,527 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0125/$0.14.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF)
The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (US:TGODF) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with a syndicate of underwriters led by Canaccord Genuity Corp. (the "Underwriters") pursuant to which the Underwriters have agreed to purchase, on a bought deal basis pursuant to the filing of a short form prospectus, an aggregate of 10,950,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $6.85 per Unit (the "Offering Price") for aggregate gross proceeds to the Company of $75,007,500 (the "Offering").
The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD) (OTC: TGODF), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).
Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.
TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.
Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.
Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.
The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.
The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.
TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.
Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.
Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.
TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.
